I need to upgrade from JD 6600 to IH. I have to buy heads as well. Just changed to 30inch rows for corn. I can buy a 1440 and heads and pay cash or I can move up to 16 series and finance. Not crazy about financing. I farm 200 acres total, 50/50 corn and soybeans just for fun but want it to support itself. 185 bu corn, 60 bushel beans. My thinking is buy the 1440 with 1020 and 1063 heads and upgrade combine in 2 or 3 years. Any help appreciated. I have located a 1440 with 2900 hours that "looks" to be in good condition. JD6600 was "primitive" but good combine. Gear drive, no ac, dusty cab, noisy, etc. I have pretty much decided to go with IH in any form.
